Huy / Halo. Kamusta ka? Ang pangalan ko ay Jessica.
Explanation:
I assume that you want to be somewhat informal. There is more than one way to say "Hi" in Tagalog, i've listed two of them above (first two terms). "Kamusta ka?" means "How are you?" it comes from the Spanish phrase "Como estas?" that has the same meaning. The last part means "My name is...." and i've filled your name in for you. HTH.
